Show Me The Bacon!

By Breeanne Howe

A new request for Obama money has been made, this time by a city councilwoman in Detroit who must have been among those who waited in line in 2009 for their free money.  Echoing the past, councilwoman JoAnn Watson recently vented her frustration that President Obama hasn’t bailed out the city of Detroit, who is currently considering filing bankruptcy.  According to Watson, “Our people in an overwhelming way supported the re-election of this president and there ought to be a quid pro quo and you ought to exercise leadership on that.”

Other council members at the meeting seemed to be in agreement with Watson’s assessment that a vote equals money, which leads one to question exactly how much “free” money the city council gave away to those who secured their seats.  And the city of Detroit is declaring bankruptcy why?  The situation also serves as a reminder to those who thought Governor Romney was out of line with his comments about Obama buying votes with free gifts.  Apparently Romney was not the only one who got that impression.
